Green Tip Tuesday - Got water?

Green Tip Tuesday

Yello bloggers & readers. Here is a quick tip for today on this rainy morning (here in Texas). This weekend my beagle, Dezi, broke her water bowl. It was a lovely ceramic bowl that I got for free off of my local Freecycle. I defiantly did not want to go out and buy a new one. So I stopped in my tracks and tried to think of something I already had that I can use. My dog is an inside and outside dog, so sometimes I find myself carrying her dog bowl full of water outside and often spill it all over my shoes!

Then it clicked! I have extra wipes boxes that I had used right after baby #2 was born (baby shower presents). I knew exactly where they were. So I ran to go get them from the garage, gave them a quick wash and then filled it up with water, closed the lid, and then took it outside.... WITH NO SPILLS! ((There were some drips, but not like before))

And since I had three. I just left one outside.... covered the lid so it wouldn't get full of leaves and dirt... and I put the other two inside where she usually eats (I want to see how she reacts) and filled one with water and the other with food. I closed the lids while she was out and it smelled less like dog food when I past by. GENIUS!

So that's my tip. If you are doing some traveling or like me who has an active dog you can hold your pets food and water in a handy dandy wipes box and when you're on the move, just close it up. I'm sure to make more of a seal you can add maybe some tape around the edges. You can also cover it with a piece of fabric to make it pretty.

If you have a green tip for me to share with my readers (blogger or not) please click on Contact. You can be a featured blogger as well. Or have a green item you want me to test out? I am PR friendly.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
